International Students

At The College of Idaho, you’ll find a campus that reflects the world and welcomes you. International students make up approximately 8 percent of The College of Idaho’s student body (nearly 100 students) and represent more than 40 countries along with a diverse range of religions, languages and ethnicities.

International students bring an important worldview to our campus and become some of our best student leaders. The College provides a variety of support services to international students, including merit scholarships, so you can make the most of your experience here. Members of the International Student Organization host events to share diverse cultural traditions with the entire campus.  In fact, International Week and the International Food Fair are two of the most popular annual events at The College of Idaho.

To be considered for admission to the College, international applicants must submit the following:

International applicants may be required to complete an interview in person, over the phone, or via SKYPE.  Applicants whose first language is not English are required to adequately demonstrate English competency as a part of the application process.  Students may demonstrate competency by submitting scores from the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), or in the case of students in English IB programs, strong scores in English. 

The College offers endeavors to take a holistic approach to the admission process.  Please contact Lorna Hunter, Vice President for Enrollment Managment, at lhunter@collegeofidaho.edu or call 208-459-5305, if you have questions or concerns.

The College offers merit scholarships to international students to defer some of the expense of attending college in the United States.
